Ppppbbbbttthh! [Butterfly tongue sound]

You didn’t know butterflies had tongues did you.

Looks like they kinda have ‘tocks too. Sure, they’re long, cylindrical ‘tocks, but they’re ‘tocks all right [puts away magnifying glass]

Ppppbbbbttthh

These glass-wing butterflies are nuts aren’t they?!

He’s all waving at cars going by and hollering "Howdy neighbor!"

“He only has a very faint skunk scent”—I’ll bet

Sender-inner Karla’s Friend’s Aunt’s Cousin took these pics. ;) Apparently, this lil’ skunk was found on the side of the road, orphaned, it’s mother roadkill. After bringing the skunk home, they placed him in the barn with a mother cat and kittens. Apparently, Lil’ McSkunkersons is easy to pick up and pet, and "only has a very faint skunk scent".

Hee!

Someone git the Lysol

One question: what will happen when the skunk gets a little older (and stinkier!?)

Whoever smelt it, dealt it

Check out this kitteh, he’s all: "I can’t even focus muh eyeballs much less deal with this OUTRAGEOUS McSkunkersons!"

Good DAY SIR!

Mom’s all: "whuh?"

An adoptive McSkunkersons Mother's work is never done

Lovely work, Karla ;)

From condos to castles, Barry has you coveredFrog-saver and stellar mortgage broker Barry writes:

"My wife and I were at a Chinese market when we spotted these bull frogs being sold for the Chinese New Year to be eaten. We decided to save one from a sad death and took it home. They sealed it in a bag with a sticker price tag just like I had bought a piece of meat. When we arrived home, our dog Puka fell in love with the frog. She thinks its her baby. She mothers it and follows it everywhere. If he tries to hop away she will nudge it back with her paw. When its in the tank she never leaves its side. She loves her Phineous frog!"

Shifty eyes

[will you please check out the eyeball action on this frog]

Yawntter

OK, "yawning" and "otter" don’t really combine to make an intelligble word, but it almost did… I love how otters have that built-in shelfie — perfect for Superbowl beverages.

Lori H., I’d crack open a fresh mussel for you if I could.
